DJ Snake, Major Lazer, and MØ’s ‘Lean On’ now #1 EDM music video of all time
Another record in the global dance phenomenon we know as EDM has been broken, this time by DJ Snake, Major Lazer, and MØ. It’s been known for a while that these acts were already in the “Billionaire’s Club (those who have achieved 1 billion views on a YouTube video)” thanks to their mega-hit “Lean On,” but this week, its music climbed to new heights at 2.1 billion views.
This officially means “Lean On” is the most-watched dance music video ever, pushing The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” to the number 2 position. Moments like this can be viewed as an indication that dance music’s osmosis into the popular music world is one that will only continue at a stronger pace than ever in the coming future.
